A NOVEL P?E8ENTMENT,
A eurious document has come
before tho public in thc shape of ti
presentment by tho grand jury of
Abbeville County, Not content
with a formai presentment of the
Supremo Court Judges for incom
petency, the L?gislature is assailed
and the whole machinery of our
Thi?) body seems to have caught
the "Smart Alexisin" of tho day
und after saying; a grout deal where
of they know but little, ure con
strained to say :
"We recommend that the Legis
lature appoint a committee of
learned mon to remodel and sim
plify all stu h laws now on the sta
tute books, and to give tho defini
tion of each phrase and a synopsis
of the entire law."
"We nro reminded again of that
Laurens statesman who though
?we ought to have but one law and
everybody ought lo follow it."
Since the formation of our gov
ernment "learned men" have been
striving year by year to perfect our
laws. Nothing short of Omnis
xdonce, can accomplish perfection
in lftws, but the wisdom of ages has
developed the fact that the best
xray to make laws for South Caro
lina is to have the law-making
power divided into two branches.
--Sewateand House of Represen
tatives. Without details, it has
been decided that the consent of a
majority otthese senators (one from
each County) together with tito con
Meat of a majority of tho members
of tho House (one hundred and
twenty four in number) shall be ne
cessary before a law is made or re
pealed^ Now?, xvo submit that laws
by a General Assembly thus con
stituted., olected by the people, aro
better it is reasonable to suppose,
thau the laws of any "committee of
learned men" who might be "ap
pointed" to "remodel and simplify."
Provision has been made for a cod
ification of the statutes every ten
years; this is a?S that is ueoessary
-or that cnn bo done.
The very natur? of our govern
ment must be changed before laws
can be made otherwise thaw Ivy the
Legislature. Even thc legislature
itself cannot delegate the power of
making laws to another. This is
recognized by every writer'cnt con
stitutional law. 'ibo Legislature
must pass tho acts, and <oVur Wvurts
construe thc language, ??nd when
this is done, nothing retma??is for
this "committee of learired men"
except to collect tho lawn passed,
and have them published in con
venient form, just ns tho taw now
directs, and ns it is done every ten
The fact is this Grand Jury seems
to havo forgotten to inquiro ?tito
matters belonging to their office,
but has essayed to be State eensors.
President McBrydo of the South
Carolina College \\*s offered *?.000
to accept the presidency of the Uni
versity of Tennessee, but has boon
induced to decline the offer and re
gain his present position, at a sa fu
ry of only $3.000.
As we view this matter it was
?n act of dis nt crested patriotism
on his part. Mr. McBride is a poor
man, dependant upon Iiis labors,
and we submit that an increase in
salary of $2,000 is nu item which
iow less patriotic mon could have
declined. Besides, the Tennessee
University, is the pride Of tho state
Demagogues do not find political
capital in Abusing it, audits per
manency and usefulness, its power
for ffood, is not annually jeopardiz
ed hythe legislature. Those who
havoclosoiy examined the work of
the South Carolina College since
tho administration of President
McBrydo, from ti desire to- learn
the facts, and not with tho precon
ceived determination of finding
fault, have fourni that the institu
tion has been steadily growing in
favor. Now that tution is charged
to every young man who is able
to pay the same, it ls hoped that
the time is not far distant when
ou? peoplo will again appreciate
fully the work of this grand old
Tho rosult of investigation in

upon having tho weeds properly
THE II HI? HT HI Di:.
Tlie following article from the
Abbevillo Medium is eminently
senslblo and meeta our endorse
"So ninny lugubrious accounts of
the condition of our people have
been published that it shoid be a
relief to look upon, the bright side
of things for a little while. In 18b*?
fou vid a desolate and improverish
ed County. There w as tin money
in circulation, there was no mer
chandize, no schools, no luxuries
and labor was disorganized. Our
political condition was of thu worst.
Then came the evil days of recon
struct lon w hen for eight years wc
were systematically robbed and
plundered until wc were reduced
t > the last extremity.
Since 1S7<> there has been a con
stant improvement until now we
are in a happy and prosperous con
dition. Our schools and collegs
have been re-opened Und are now
crowded with generous youth, ac
quiring knowledge anti laying
broad and deep the foundations of
future usefulness and eminence.
Factories have gone upon nil sides.
Railroads have been built and are
now successfully operated in all
sections of tho state. Labor-sav
ing implements have taken tho
the pince of the crude devices of
tlie olden timo. Our productions
have been increased and our indus
tries diversified. Our people have
claimed their own and we have an
enlightened judiciary. Crime is
punished and we have faithful Ju
ries? Lifo is secure, property is
safe and there are no obstructions
to the peaceful pursuits of happi
There is no prollt in the lamenta
tions so common among us. Wo
are doing as w ell as roost people in
other sections. In parts of Texas
people are perishing. In the North
thousands are out of homo -.and an
archy (daims its victims in the pe
riodic excitements that afflict that
latitude, lt ls best to think of the
blessings which have been shower
ed upon us than to repine at the
troubles that visited us in the past.
Further developments in the
Hoover agitation show (dearly the
i objeet of the organization. There
can no longer be doubt but that
tho objeet is to swindle the negroes
out of their money. $1,00 is collec
ted from each member and for
warded to Hoover, at Hickory N.
0. This is the sole objeet of the or
ganization, although? after having
a compact secret society, tin; mem
bers themselves might bc induced
to go forward in un worthy schemes.
Tho citizens of Greenville have ne
ted with becoming discretion in
their course last week, mention
They reasoned with tho mem
bers, showing tho folly of such an
organization, th? danger likely to
result, and told them that no
such secret society could exist.
Tho negroes seem glad to have
their leaders exposed and now the
Hoover movement is broken effect
The fanners of Laurens County
are fortunate in having the great
Fanners' Congress or Encamp
ment in such,easy access. Surely
all who can leave home in August
will not miss this rare opportunity
of attending such an interesting
and profitable agricultural meet
Thc Hoover' organizer of Green
ville has declared,!! boycott against
Fdgofield and Laurens counties.
He does not care to meet the
young white men of 1 bese counties
and this ls the cause of tho boycott.

Prepare for the "Winter.
[J. Washington Watts in Weekly
As harvest is at hand and hay
time near by, I am moved, in the
Interest of the farmers of this State,
to again urge tho propriety of pro
viding better for tue winter in the
way of long forage. The oat crop
has been relied on almost entirely
heretofore to help out tho small
crop of corn fodder, as our people
plant comparatively little com and
thc oat crop is an expensive one
and has got to be very uncertain, it
is our interest to look to some other
source for relief, Many substitutes
present themselves .such as rye, tho
millets, the ragweed and crab gras
Sow rye on good land, very thick
and mow it while In boom, and cure,
it as other hay. lt makes very
good bay, is relished by all kinds ot
stock, and ? have no doubt is equal
in feeding value to good timoththy.
Tho millets are nil good, whether
in the green state or as hay. The
mg weed is a volunteer crop, con
sequently hny from it costs much
loss than either of tho above, and
in my (?pinion, is not inferior in
feeding value to either. When cut
at tho proper time, which is while
in bloom, and well cured, I prize it
almost as much as good clover hay.
All kinds of stock eat lt Will avidity,
and it scorns especially to suit the
borso. Wo never feed it to milk
cows, as it imparts a bitter tate to
the milk. It is cured like pea vines,
though it requires loss time. Those
that ure about three feet high make
better hay than those of larger
growth. Cut them In the forenoon,
cock them in the cook two or three
days, when they aro ready for tho
b?rn, and as soon as thoroughly
cured should be packed closely. In
fact, this should be done with all
hay, as it get too dry when left
loose, and loses much of its value.
What shatters off in the barn may
be fed to sheep and goats. They
will regard it an especial treat.
Very many farmer can't bo made
to bel levo that there ls any good
In the rag-weed. To all such I nay
try a little. We aro told to try all
things, and to hold fast to that
which is good. If any ono gives
Ibis / fair trial, and ls not convlnc
9(1 ?hat wo have tho liest hay for
.ho cost that eau be found in this
the old soldier
country, then I will give it up.
Very much the samo may be said
about crab grass. It is a volunteer,
is very abundant, and if cut While
in bloom makes fairly good hay.
Rut most people who try to utilize
this cotton pest let it get brown be
fore cutting it. It is then of but
little value, and horses will not eat
it if they can help it. All hay gras
ses should bo cut while in bloom
and ouiod with as little exposure
to the sun as possible.
Tho Suit ol' Sullivan.
The Augusta Chronicle.
Abbeville S.C., Juno 21.-(Special.]
There appears to bc a considera
ble misunderstanding in regard to
tlie attachment of the property of
I the Atlantic.Oreoitvillo and Wes
i tern railroad company by Sullivan,
i a contractor on the toad bet?re and
since it was purchased by Susong
A Co., On the 28th df last January
Susong <V Co., through their attor
ney, W. 0. lionet, lOsq.tOf this place,
paid Sullivan eight thousand dol
lars in cash, on the condition that
the remainder of his claim was to
bo paid as soon as the work dom; by
Sullivan should be measured and
valued by two competent engi
neers, one to be selected by Susong
A Co., and tho other by Sullivan
This contract was drawn up in wri
ti pg and signed by the parties.
Sullivan now refuses to abide by
tho report of the engineers who cut
down lus claim and then elects to
sue for the whole amount, vthlch ls
over ten thousand dollurrs. The
proceedings in attachment against
Susong & Co., ure simply based up
on tho fact that Susong & Co., are
non-residents. Under our code the
property of non-residents defen
dants can bo attached to cover
judgement and costw If the plaintiff
prevails. The popular idea that
attachment proceedings ure only
connected with insolvency and
fraud is erroneous, and it seems
that tho plaintiff In tho case has
tried to take advantages of this mis
I am reliably informed that Su
song A Co., aro perfectly solvent,
and they would have Hied any ne
cessary bund had notice been given
them of the intention of Sullivan to
attach their property. There is no
allegation of fraud on tho part of
the phd nt i IV. The suit is simply one
for the recovery of money upon a
claim about which there is n dis
pute. Susong A Co, their attorney
informs me, is perfectly willing to
pay for the work done by Sullivan.
Tho whole matter will turn on tho
conti act signed by Susong A Co.,
Editor A nv v. KT I S K H :
About this time last year there
appeared in cotton in our immedi
ate section a very small insect,
that proved to bo very dblusterous
to cotton wherever it nppoared.
The insects ure about as large as
mites and of a reddish color. When
once started they appear by thous
ands on a single *talk. The cotton
leaves turn red, in fact the whole
stalk turns red, and everything on
it drops off, but the stalk leaves out
again lute in the Fall.
They do not spread very fast nt
iirst, but tho later I nj tho season the
faster they spread until tinnily the
whole Held is ravaged.
They are beginning to re-appear
this year in a low places. Chin you
give any information concerning
What is the cause and origin and
how can they be exterminated ?

Inking moro than commensurable with

But she gave ber heart to a sturdy young
lieutenant, who seemed tho worthiest of
all. Tho falber of tho young lady, it wns
feared, would object to the match, and
tho two now schemed to ovorcomc bis
resistance. Tho officer could speak no
word of English, but his intended thought
it best that ho should embark at once
for Now York, disclose tho secret and
obtnin parental consent. With porsevor
nnco slio taught him tho following ex
pression: "I came to ask you for j our
daughter's hand." Repeating it during
tho entiro voyngo, ho felt no apprehen
sion, but wns certain of victory. Ho
landed, nnd driving to the brown Rtono
front on Fifth avenue, entered without
further delny. Wishing to liavo tho ap
pearance of impulsive notion and "con
tnining" love, ho stormed tho old mer
chant with that expression which he hod
brought over tho ?ea: "I came to unk you

the poor Now York girl has experienced
to her sorrow, ia not gilded hy tho halo

cause money holds them with tho
chains they cannot break. Tho *
aching hearts are there, and more
numerous iu the circle of one s friends
than tongue can tell or pen describe. And,
in conclusion, let mo repeat, as the result
of extended observations, that it is far

An Oswego (N. Y.) mechanic, who has

was at work for tho canal company, says
that employes uro being burled daily by
hundreds. Three trains aro run out of

?lead employes, which aro taken to a
place called "Monkey Hill." These
three trains l)oar three classes of corpses.
Hie first is known ns "dumps"-tnOSQ

The second train contains those who dio
at work. The third contains those wdioso
friends can pay for a decent burial. At
thc burying ground a long trench is dug
and the bodies are dumped In and cov
ered over with two or three bsd of earth.
The great objection to thc food is tho
manner of cooking, Everything is
cooked with onions. They are found in
the soup and hash, mid the beefsteak is
smothered in them. Even tho tea and
coffee taste mid smell of onions. The
employes of the American Dredging

each dollar ia worth about sixty-five
